ten Seconds On A Summer-ish Day.

10 seconds on a Summers day



Tiny boy child
bare feet flying
flesh hung over grass
chasing bugs most
every which way
laughing as they dash
from his chubby
outstretched fingers

escaping in a flash.
He's spending time
just doing nothing
but having so much fun
exerting serious efforts
trying to blow
more perfect bubbles
just to watch them \POP/
Looking back over
his freckled
sunburned shoulders
for my approval
I just smile
and he continues counting
Summer's wealth
A treasure I
left behind
so very long ago
as I view through
of memories
dusty pains,
a glimpse of

in the warmth

of a son.
